    Pros

    - Great atmosphere to work, very friendly co-workers
    - Extremely good compensation for an intern (PhD-level with MS in EE)
    - No pressure or stress

    Cons

    Not too many cons:
    - In such a big company, you don't really feel your work is going to make impact

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doctorate-level interns should work more on research-oriented projects or at least projects that allow you to get more knowledge about SoC/CPU. Less scripting, tool-flow debug, and other tasks that do not contribute to personal growth (other than becoming better at using software tools...).

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Seems to be a lot of activities to keep your interest, and the pay is about middle of the road.

    Cons

    They want to take over your life and make sure you drink the corporate koolaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be more flexible and adopt more of a start up mentality, obsession with meetings for the sake of having meetings means you often miss deadlines. People are too busy going to meetings to get any real work done.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Technical interns get very involved in the design process and everyday activities of your group, the work is relevant to your academic experience, you learn a lot as an intern.

    Cons

    Not the best employee benefits, not the best salary, no free food (except for fruit), management is not clear about the overall strategy of the company and the rationale for recent acquisitions.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an Intern, there's a lot they expect out of you from the get go. The culture here promotes everyone to work hard, and there's definitely a sense of purpose. The Austin campus is pretty nice: there's good lunch and nice break rooms. There are occasional intern events, and the pay is pretty decent as well.

    Cons

    It's easy to get lost as an intern. After they give you a task, there's not much communication that exists between you and your team (or manager). It's really a solo effort in terms of getting something done. This place can feel like a "white collar sweatshop" at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management felt aloof at times.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have great employee retention. I have known many people there who have worked there for 20-30 years. People literally enter Intel as fresh graduates and work their way up to high management there. Good benefits. Lots of opportunities within the company to change group or move to any other geographical location.

    Cons

    They have fallen a bit behind in the latest tech businesses and need to turn around faster

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Learning a lot about hardware, working in a company that actually makes things, company is large but not completely mired in big-company thinking (probably due to the large amount of working managers), very flexible work hours. The people are really what make Intel great.

    Cons

    Cafe is relatively expensive, training is a little sluggish (most person-to-person)
